We would like to invite all faculty with an interest pursuing COVID19 research to a Zoom meeting to share their project ideas in hopes of identifying  synergies and collaborative opportunities. We will answer questions about the special VIURAC COVID 19 Call for Proposals and share a list of other COVID research funding opportunities. Some areas where VIU faculty may be able to respond quickly include but are not limited to:
-  psychosocial impact on vulnerable populations (e.g. frontline healthcare providers, first responders, the elderly, incarcerated persons),
- impact on the local and provincial tourism industry,
-  impacts and responses in rural/remote and indigenous populations,
-  data modelling of the disease,
-  manufacturing of medical supplies including masks, gowns and parts for face shields and ventilators etc., and
-  technology, services and innovative supports for distance learning
